    Manual is done...at least the "beta" version. I'm going through it now, testing the checklists against proper functionality. My goal is to forward the package on to XA to begin distribution preparations by the weekend......this does NOT mean it will come out over the weekend.....distribution prep is quite a bit of work and takes some time. No update to 3D or sounds or any of that stuff in this version, just the engine model / prop locks for more accurate operation...and a few other tid-bits. As always, the fancy 3D / sounds are slated for the 2.0 release. -tkyler

    Hi, I know a lot of simmers use Simbrief or PFPX butI don't. I do my route preparation on my own website for free. I like to do it this way. I did update today the OFP generated for the Boeing 737 (both classic and NG). I have kept at the moment the legacy OFP for classics and NG, but added the Boeing B737_CL_and_NG OFP. When you export in PDF or print the OFP selection from Open Office Calc, you have the result attached below (ofp.pdf). If you wish, you can download the ofp.ots (Open Document Template, made with Open Office) below, or generate it dynamically using my web site YART  ¡ Yet Another Route Tool !© in Advanced mode. The principle is to follow the worklow suggested in the first tab of the spreedsheat and then export the OFP located in the last tab of the Calc document. Click on the signature standing on the OFP to add the handwritten notes to the OFP. Best regards. ofp.pdf ofp.ots ofp-notes.pdf

    I´m really diving into this script trying to improve it. I´ve already added a flap retraction altitude of 1.000ft, so the FO doesn´t set flaps 1 right after liftoff... which is a little unhandy ._. I´m trying to make the FO handle the GRD/FLT switch, but if i enter the dataref into the script, lua crashes. no idea why. I´ll also try to make it set flap 30 for final. i´m a flap 30 guy ._. I´wonder if it would be possible to link takeoff and landing config to the FMC data. Would be awsome. I´m also trying to make the FO arm the speedbrakes... which doesn´t work. Same problem the engine start switches have i guess : P This script has plenty of potential : ) EDIT: Copilot now also starts chrono during before taxi procedures and stops it during after shutdown procedure.

    Version 2.0 from 2018-06-16 Change log * v 2.0 : Engine start switches CONTINUOUS (after start and before landing) is now handled by the copilot, with the use of a different Lua function not conflicting with IXEG software * v 2.0 : Autobrake switch is now fully handled by the copilot, with the use of a different Lua function not conflicting with IXEG software * v 2.0 : Press. FLT - GRD switch is now handled by the F/O. * v 2.0 : Guarded switches (flt_control_A_guard, flt_control_B_guard, spoiler_A_guard, spoiler_B_guard, alt_flaps_guard, att_pwr_guard, stby_pwr_guard and bus_xfr_guard) now checked guarded by the F/O during preflight. * v 2.0 : The F/O sets his CDU to LEGS page as part of the before start flow, per FCOM.

    It has been said many times. You asked the questions, and you were responded to, in a courteous manner, by both Cameron and Ben. That's when you continued to insist that the problem is with the Saab. I don't really know how many different ways you want us to say it. The problem is not in the Saab. There is, literally, nothing to fix. The problem has been acknowledged by Andrey, and he, himself has admitted the problem is not in the Saab, but in XEnviro. You're asking us to fix a problem in the Saab that doesn't exist. I don't care how much you convince yourself there is a problem in the Saab, you are simply...wrong. Lastly, claiming our products don't work as intended is a fast track to nowhere. I'm asking you, respectfully, to not make such remarks.

    Or you could argue that you donate to xEnviro because the bug is their problem. There is literally not a single thing I can do about it. They have admitted they're on track to a fix and have discovered that it is their problem. What would you have me do? Ask them for source code to their product? Your attitude is laughable.

    Hey all, Here is a screenshot of what I was able to achieve with Gizmo in just a few hours of coding - a terrain display complete with a left-right sweep. https://i.imgur.com/AWQ0EvU.png It uses the bake terrain function to build the terrain image and it draws using a radar beam-like sweep. This was all done within a few hours - it would take me quite a while to get this level of development using the plugin method... having to attach a debugger in Visual Studio, make code changes, load a different aircraft, build in Visual Studio, copy+paste to the plugins folder, load the plane, (and do that over and over...) My personal wishlist for future Gizmo versions is if it could include a colour-scheme that mimics the Airbus/Boeing colouring scheme (the ocean is currently magenta in my version from a colour-scheme applied). It could be fixed via a fragment shader but the source in the documentation links have been removed. Other than that, this thing is fully working! Thanks for all the hard work, Gizmo Team!

    Really? What's more important? A tin can with a few humans racing around the earth at 17,000mph, or a pretend airplane? Priorities man, priorities!

    Hey guys, I don't mind repeating this in a few forums, probably better to have it in more locations. The quick and dirty is that we took @ 6 years to get the IXEG to minimum release....and in the last year before release, things were difficult and we were unsure when we would make it because the team members still have to pay bills and do their other jobs. As it stands, I got involved in a space startup about 9 months before the 733 came out. I managed to 'stall' my participation in that startup for about 9 months and worked solely on the 733 with no income, living on savings during that time to get the 733 out. Wtihin 3 months of the release of the 733, the startup was in full swing and I was the prime designer for our deliverables to NASA. There was a lot riding on the line, many big groups involved, NASA, ESA, Airbus, Boeing, etc....and I could not back out. Because this project was deadline based, and i was already behind, I've been working at it solid for about 2 years to meet the deliverables...which I recently completed just last week by handing over our hardware to head to the ISS on SpX-15 here in about a month....which is why you've seen two whole posts in as many days from me as I can finally take a breath. My participation in this startup is relegated to this "deliverable phase", by my own volition as my passion is flight simulations.....and while I have loose ends to pick up....documentations and such, I am getting poised to get back into XP dev work. I will say, that the release of XP11 also contriubted to some of the 'wait and see'. It should not be hard to tell from the work we put into the 733 that we are passionate about the small details and its painfully clear to the team the features that are missings...and the good news is that we can't let that go, even if it SEEMS that way due to some lack of activity. I know Morten, Nils and I have been in XP Dev work for oh....maybe 14+ years? We very much appreciate you guys cheering for us and your support and while I apologize for this pause, you can be sure that the 733 will surge ahead in features. -tkyler

    Again and again. A recent Morten post: The aircraft will get further updates, we apologize for the delay which is mainly a result of us doing this a as a hobby besides our "real" jobs. A recent Tkyler post: I'm just now reading this and as a IXEG member and mod here, I have permissions to respond and will. Especially since I'm the one who programmed much of the features Shobhan is lamenting and also the one who has not worked on it in some time. First off, Shobhan complaints seem to be 100% focused on the FMC and indeed that is plausible enough as it it centric to airline operations and a big appeal for airliner sim enthusiasts. But there are also other aspects of a airliner simulation to consider that others find equally important as well and worthy of value. Other products, while having a more complete FMC implementation, might not have as good of visual or aural fidelity....and who's to say that "immersion of FMC accuracy" is more important to simmer A or B than "immersion of visual accuracy", or "immersion of aural accuracy", i.e. I myself enjoy the cockpit immersion, visual and aural more than the FMC usage. I know this is not the case for you here Shobahn. In the end, we want it all to be accurate no doubt. A thorough FMC with a cartoony or disproportionate 3D looking airplane is very disappointing to myself......BUT....I also know the FMC is the centerpiece for most customers and worth the discussion. At the end of the day, Shobahn is entitled to his opinion and I fully respect that....what I don't respect is his calling us lazy. Shobahn doesn't know me, Jan, Nils and Morten from Adam. He doesn't know my wife, my daughters, their trials and tribulations, my brothers, parents and all the things in our worlds that will be important and relevant long after X-Plane is gone from our worlds and sometimes there are things that need tending to at critical times in life that have no other options. Its just the way things can be in life. Now I certainly would not call Shobahn lazy because I don't know him, nor will I call him ignorant....I will say he's made some ignorant statements here in this forum though. IXEG is made up of very very good and talented individuals....so good that each is in demand and always candidates for promotions in their own professions and they honor those committments they made there before IXEG. I also realize there are committments to customers, especially when money changes hands, and I will continue to honor those over time as best I can. The whole team have a long history of longevity and committment to X-Plane. I myself am disappointed at the timing of updates too, but things are what they are for the moment. The alternative was to what? say, "well we won't make the 733 100% accurate for some years and some folks will be upset one day....so lets just not do it at all?" I do not subscribe to that strategy as i've learned that any good thing takes time and you have to start somewhere and always keep moving.... and listening to folks like Shobahn voice their criticisms and opinions along the way come with the territory. If things don't move at a pace to satisfy all, then thats just the way it is. In the meantime, Shobahns comments are very much noted and understood... I even agree with about 85% of them.... and myself, being the prime author behind the FMC....will return to working on it and improving it further quite soon enough. My situation is well documented elsewhere. If nothing else, IXEG have demonstrated tenacity and committment to this project over many years and it will not languish as is. If there's one group I trust to keep moving and improving the 733, even in the midst of the occasional update draughts, its Jan, Nils and Morten! -tkyler

    This may be a case of erronous axis setup and alignment in X-Plane. Cheers, Jan

    Version 1.0.0


    Thomson livery for the amazing IXEG 737. They stopped flying these in 2012 but up to then, were a common sight at all the usual european charter destinations. I managed to nail the red window on the starboard side you might notice in the screenshots - all good! Thanks to IXEG for releasing a great paint kit on release day - much appreciated!

    Further food for thought: https://www.businessinsider.com.au/richard-lewis-instagram-photos-100000-dollars-new-york-new-portraits-copyright-2015-5 An "artist" is literally making large format prints of Instagram content that someone else produced and selling it. Grey area. Dubious. etc. Basically, don't be an ass. Create something original.

    Log data is inconclusive but does show you opened the X-Plane map window and then five minutes later X-Plane crashes while(or just after) loading DSF files.

    Glad we got a result! I'll make a note to "offer an update check if a new unlicensed product is detected" for a future release...

    While your i5 might be "working fine" it's also working at almost half the speed of a modern i7. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-2500K+%40+3.30GHz&id=804

    It's enough from the first your posts. As You can see, I have stopped give you questions, days ago. ...But you and Ben Russell continue to repeat all the same, what was said first of the day, are you provoke me ? In my opinion it's better to close this topic. Next time, I will know, that purchased your goods, may not work, and that's normal, and not ask questions. And if ask questions, developers will start to "downvote" me, also fanboys will trolling, and blame me for trolling. p.s. Andrey (from xEnviro) has noticed to himself add-on, that will not work, with some add-ons... I would advise doing the same for Saab 340 at least until the correction of the add-on, which can last for months.
